"Amanda is professional, insightful and very easy to talk to - and more importantly, she listens and makes suggestions / asks questions to improve understanding. I genuinely feel better equipped to face things now. I am sure I will have some bad days, but I am confident I can cope with them more easily. [what I found most useful was]... the ability to talk openly and genuinely feel listened to. I liked that Amanda challenged me sometimes, rather than saying nothing - allowing us to jointly explore thoughts and feelings." (S, November, 2019).
"[I would recommend Amanda]...because it gave me the time and care to talk and discuss what's going on and give me helpful tools to use for life. I was able to talk freely and work through current situations and feelings without feeling judge or invalidated." (N, May 2019).

You can talk in private or with your parent with you" (R, Aged 11, Feb 2019) / "Amanda has a good friendly manner which helped my son relax and open up more.

"Amanda was very understanding about my issues and helped me find ways to move forward and plan for what comes next. She is friendly and approachable and I feel so much better following our sessions" (B, November, 2018).

The change I and others have seen in myself is truly life changing and she has helped me massively to make large improvements and changes in my way of thinking to make day to day life so much more meaningful. I was very scared to start seeing someone but Amanda is so incredibly warm and welcoming that I felt comfortable from the get go. I’m so happy that I took sessions with her and would advise anyone struggling with any aspect of their mental health to do so too and to not put it off, as it really is completely worthwhile." (P, October 2018).
"Having been referred via my private health insurer to Amanda, I was slightly apprehensive. However, Amanda immediately made me feel at ease and I was able to communicate openly about my issue with anxiety. Amanda has provided me with expert knowledge regarding Mindfulness and various techniques I could use in day to day scenarios and now I feel prepared and stronger to face everyday life. I am very grateful to Amanda for the kindness and compassion she has offered and would highly recommend her to anyone who may face similar issues". (H, October 2018).
“Amanda has helped me through a very difficult period. She is an excellent listener. Knows where to probe more and ask questions that have really helped me identify what causes my low moods and depression. She has helped me to put strategies in place so I feel confident I can identify triggers and deal with these going forward to limit the impact on my mental wellbeing”. (J, May 2018).
